Carved Hebrew Graphics for 6 occasions

One of my students of our 17 Lesson Collection sent me several of her watermelon carvings as she was learning. Many of them had carved Hebrew graphics on them.

Even it your can’t ready carved Hebrew graphics, you can appreciate the beauty of her carving designs and pick up ideas for your own.

Here is another of Leah’s carved Hebrew graphics on a watermelon. This one is a Torah (Jewish Bible) surrounded by carved roses. She added some fun elements of bling with rhinestones and pearls.

Here is a closer look at the rhinestones and pearl beads added to the carving for some extra bling. Items like these can be glued on with super glue.

On this Mazel Tov melon carving, Leah added pearl beads on the hour of the watch and the center of the watch hands.

The watermelon carving shown front and center in Leah’s pretty fruit tray is taught in our 101 Course for Beginners. The tools that make the wavy U-shaped cuts are in our set of Corrugated U-Cutters that you will find in our online shop.

Shabbat – Carved Hebrew Graphics – 2 Variations

Leah created this next watermelon carving to celebrate a family reunion on Shabbat.

This is a logo done for a family gathering. The words is the meaning “Saturday” (in Hebrew “Shabbat”) – it was a
Saturday family reunion. See logo attached so you will see how proud i was with the carving!
It was lots of fun.
I really felt accomplished!
– Leah

Leah saw in our video lessons, “Carving Letters and Words” how you can carve dark on light or light on dark. So she decided to do both. She carved a dark logo on a light background on one side of the watermelon and on the other side, she carved a light colored logo on the dark green background of rind.

On this side Leah carved the Shabbat graphic leaving dark rind for the letters on a background of the lighter inner rind.

About this carving, Leah wrote:

This was a hit!
I got tons of compliments for it
I am so glad to have chosen carving!

On the top of the watermelon, you can see how she carved the same graphic two different ways on each side. In this view you can better see the roses that she carved on the top.

You’ll find step-by-step instructions for how to carve roses like these in our video lessons, Carving Watermelons – Roses, Buds and Leaves. This lesson set is available separately, as part of our Vegetable and Fruit Carving 101 Course for Beginners,  and in our  17 Lesson Collection.
